It wasn't until I moved to Washington, D.C. to work for Bass Public Affairs and did some serious exploration and networking that I discovered all of the fun and very underrated activities there are to do in this bustling city. Of course there are the great museums and monuments that are a must when it comes to things to do, but I'm talking about the under-the-radar stuff that only locals tend to know about. In an effort to spread the word of these great happenings and things-to-do, I've decided to do a short series of ten fun things to do in D.C. that go unmentioned!
First and Foremost, I'll start by saying Washington D.C. is one of the most diverse cities I've ever been to. With so many different ethnicities in one place, there is always some kind of cultural event going on that is well worth ones time. My eyes have been opened and my horizons broadened due to this cities wonderful diversity!
This past week, I found myself at one of the most unique ballets I have ever had the privilege to attend: The 70th Anniversary Jubilee Performance by The Sukhishvili Georgian National Ballet Company. The Lisner Auditorium at George Washington University was packed with an enthusiastic audiences that was in awe of the energetic performance that included fire, swords, and a live orchestra. The athleticism and grace the dancers portrayed, alongside world-class musicians, was amazing!
Washington D.C. is constantly buzzing with a wide-range of cultural events, like the Georgian ballet I went to. It's just a matter of keeping one's eyes and ears open to know when and where they're happening!
Stay tuned for the exciting adventure I have planned for next weekend!
